Competitive Intelligence Council

We share new ideas, solve problems, and build relationships that enable us to benchmark and further both our own and our companies’ development in competitive analysis. Among other topics, we discuss:

  • Economic and competitive financial forecasting
  • Human intelligence elicitation and collection techniques
  • Managing competitive intelligence (CI) during lean times

We pay special attention to the ethics of competitive analysis; our emphasis on confidentiality makes for an intensive exchange of ideas on this sensitive topic.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
